ATLANTA — Three people were hurt Thursday afternoon after a dispute led to gunfire, according to officers.

Atlanta Police said they were called to Law Street around 2:40 p.m. to respond to a report about three people shot. The incident happened in a wooded area, which appears to be a mini-junkyard where people hang out, they said.

Officers said the preliminary investigation reveals the three men were in a dispute which escalated to gunfire.
